WALKING TO BENEFIT PENNSYLVANIA VETERANS
                     


6th ANNUAL ONE HOUR
LANSDALE HOMETOWN HERO WALK

WALK UPDATES AND SHIRT PICKUP

First, for all those who are to get shirts I would ask to please see if you can make arrangements to pick up your shirts today, Thursday or Friday. Whatever shirts have not been picked up will be brought on Saturday to Trinity Lutheran Church, 1000 West Main Street Lansdale.

PLEASE CONTACT ME BY PHONE OR EMAIL AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PICK UP YOUR SHIRTS AND WHAT DAY OR TIME IS BEST. I will then get back to you.

As to the walk itself the weather for SATURDAY does not look promising at this stage, I am praying it will change for the better. Nevertheless, we are RAIN OR SHINE for the walk as there is no rain date.

If rain is expected we will move everything prewalk indoors to Hyson Hall.

Thanks for all of your support of our veterans and for the ALL VOLUNTEER PA Hero Walk team's mission to help our Pennsylvania veterans in need.

Any questions please just get in touch.
God's blessing to one and all.

Veterans Assistance At This Year's Walk

This year the VETERANS MINISTRY OF TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH will be assisting before and after the walk & as our partner has arranged for representatives of the MONTGOMERY COUNTY OFFICE OF VETERANS AFFAIRS OFFICE to be in attendance and offer assistance and guidance to veterans who have questions about benefits & veterans' issues. In addition, representatives of the MONTGOMERY COUNTY OFFICE OF RECORDER OF DEEDS will be on site to issue Veterans ID cards which will not only identify you as a veteran but allow the card holding veteran to obtain discounts from hundreds of local merchants.(Veterans who want to get the ID card should bring their DD-214 or other military discharge document to the walk)

A Change in the PA Hero Walk Philosophy

Since the first PA Hero Walk in 2009, the group has raised and given the Wounded Warrior Project hundreds of thousands of dollars and have helped many veterans with their efforts. In the winter of 2013 the group decided to make a change in 2014 and dedicate their fundraising efforts to focus on Pennsylvania veterans from all branches and from all eras. Since this change the group has has received unanimous accolades for their decision to keep the money raised in Pennsylvania to help Pennsylvania veterans. The PA Hero Walk has rasied over $1.8 Million to date for our veterans.

The group continues to emphasize helping individual veterans that need help in the following areas listed below.

  • HOUSING
  • FOOD
  • CLOTHING
  • CAR AND HOME REPAIR
  • APPLIANCE PUCHASE OR REPAIR
  • UTLITY PAYMENTS
  • AUTO PURCHASE

If you know of a Pennsylvania veteran in need of help, please refer them to their County Veterans Affairs Director or our website at PAHEROWALK.COM

Al Pulice, in conjunction with the Kiski Valley Veterans and Patriots Association (KVVPA), founded and created the PA Hero Walk and you can contact Al for any additional questions that you may have via email at alpulice@comcast.net or call Al at 412.862.1672
